My Tag My Town

November 12th-25th 2010

My Tag My Town is an exciting 3 year project finded by Matamata-Piako District Council to educate youth away from the negative effects of tagging in their towns; encouraging a new generation to take pride in and ownership of their town in a positive way!

Alpha Media Productions, a division of Television Media Group based in Matamata is driving this project and is looking forward to going into the third year with many more fun, community projects on the horizon.

The exhibition in the Community Gallery, from November 12th to 25th is showcasing artwork from school children around the District, depicting what their town means to them. Some schools also produced large artworks on boards, which will be put forward as part of a competition for painting murals around the District in the final year of the project.
